Hi,

 

I've been using Geekzone for years, whenever I needed to research some topic or tech item. I thought it was finally time to join. 😀

 

I'm retired and now pursue my hobby: gaming (consoles mainly). I'm active on Twitter and also on YouTube. 

 

I used to work with computers, networking, web servers (Linux), web design .. you name it, in the heady internet days of the 1990s and early 2000s.

 

I just purchased a new android phone (which process brought me here for info) - bemoaning the supply situation in NZ - and look forward to sharing experiences with my mobile and other tech items in the appropriate forums.

 

Cheers

 

Britta

Welcome to Geekzone, @Food4Dogs

 

As a former Waimea College boy that moved north for study and then work, I miss the place greatly.  The majority of my college friends have moved elsewhere as well, so unfortunately moving back is not on my horizon any time soon. :)

Welcome to the madhouse





I'm a geek, a gamer, a dad and an IT Professional. I have a full rack home lab, size 15 feet, an epic beard and Asperger's. I'm a bit of a Cypherpunk, who believes information wants to be free and the Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Welcome to the GZ gerigamers family - the more the merrier. What do you play?





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Hi Dynamic,

 

we just love it here in Nelson - Waimea College is actually not that far from our home. We had to wait a long time until the opportunity arose, and now we're staying put. No more moving! 😃

Ha, geri-gamers - I love it! 

 

I play mainly Playstation consoles (PS4, also older ones, and my beloved PS Vita), Nintendo Switch and 3DS, and very limited on PC.

 

I'm very much an RPG player; but do like to try a bit of everything.
